Jane was awarded a prestigious Churchill Fellowship in 2016 to investigate management algorithms and contemporary conservative management programs for anterior cruciate ligament injury, travelling to Europe, Scandinavia and America. Jane is a passionate advocate for the implementation of world best practice for ACL injury in Australia. Since completing her fellowship Jane is currently involved in several related research projects, as part of a world renown Australian knee research team.
